New Melle Community Passion Play Rehearsals Start in January

Members of the community are invited to take part in the New Melle Community Passion Play for 2018. No acting experience necessary for stand-in and crowd people. All ages are needed and welcome. (Those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.) People for behind the scenes are also needed for props. There are some speaking parts available as well.  

Rehearsals will begin in January. Choir rehearsals will be Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. at Friedens UCC, 3560 Mill Street in New Melle, beginning January 14th. Rehearsals for cast and crew will be Monday evenings beginning January 15th, also at Friedens UCC. Tech week, with nightly rehearsals at the New Melle Sports and Recreation Hall, will be March 12-16. Performances will be March 17 & 18, and March 24& 25. (Saturdays at 7 p.m. Sundays at 2 and 4;30 p.m.) 

Please come and be part of this long-running community event which offers both community service and Thespian hours, as well as great Christian interaction and involvement for all ages. Costumes provided. If you fear being onstage, come and be part of props and other behind the scenes help.
